The new Moon takes place at 3 degrees 23 minutes Taurus at 10:26 PM EST on April 22 - Earth Day and this astrologer’s Solar Return. For many, the New Moon will already be on 23 April.
Taurus’s primary need is for safety and security. It knows how to hunker down and enjoy it’s own patch of couch and Sunshine and apple tree.
We have The Sun moving toward a conjunction with Uranus on this New Moon.
Taurus likes routine, safety and security. Uranus likes to shake our tree and remind us that safety and security are one thing, and torpor is another.
We are being asked to look at how we live on the earth in new ways and join with our individual higher minds, and the higher minds of our fellow humans and unseen realms to steady ourselves; to calm our hearts and minds and become more engaged consciously with each moment.
In the quiet, the genius higher mind that is with us always, is able to be heard.
The Taurus Sun/ Uranus conjunction gives an opportunity to ground our connection with the higher mind, the human mind and the Earth.
Being quiet for a while, upon awakening, sipping tea or coffee, looking out the window, writing in the journal, cleaning up the last of last night’s dishes, we will get answers to our questions to help to navigate daily life.
When we follow the guidance of the part of ourselves that can see further down the road, we are rewarded by a smoother flow in the life.
At this new Moon, we also have Jupiter conjunct Pluto in Capricorn with Saturn close by in Aquarius.
Pluto and Jupiter together are showing us, in an exaggerated way, where the cracks are in the system, what works and what doesn’t. What needs to be transformed is revealed in ever greater relief. The transformation begins with a vision, a desire, and focus on the good.
Now that Saturn has moved, for a while, into Aquarius, we are getting hints of how we can move forward in ways that are better for individuals and the whole.
With the Pluto/Jupiter conjunction— The old guard – Capricorn - is putting up a fight in an exaggerated and sometimes dishonest way (part of Jupiter’s M. O. ) and Saturn in Aquarius, ruler of Capricorn- is going to strongly encourage us to find new structures. We are aided by the individual and group vision and desire for that which is happier, healthier, and more satisfying. The focus must be on the evolution of the Good in our hearts, minds and home World.
At this New Moon, with Uranus Sun Moon and Mercury all clustered together, the time is ideal for the human mind to make a lasting connection with the Higher Self.
With all of the Capricorn energy, discipline can be called in.
When we start to fret, worry, complain, get fearful, start to freak out, we can use Taurus to make a new habit.
Mercury moves into Taurus on 28 May, so loving communications on all levels is called for: thoughts, words, writing, self-talk and interaction with others.
The steps we make on the Earth are a communication, to our home planet, so walking meditation can be helpful at this time. It will help ground, connect and to release excess energy and emotion.
When fretting begins, redirect the thoughts and energy to to strengthen the connection with the Higher Self, the Higher Mind that is with us always, offering help, guidance, solace and silence.
We can turn the mind to prayer/love/light/good vibes for others, sending hopeful healing thoughts to individuals, families, organizations, and institutions.
This is how we walk the talk of Love and Light and Healing thoughts. 😊
We actually send them, as a big beam of light, to whatever entity comes to mind.
We can replace the worried thoughts as soon as we catch ourselves and reform them into a ball of love and send that ball of love to whatever comes to mind first.
You can’t run out of it and the more of it you send the more of it there is.
We are not powerless here. We can choose the thought that helps and heals every time if we get in the habit of doing it.
Like attracts like so having a habit of thoughts that feel good will lift the spirits and the immune system.
If finding a more easeful thought is too much, then be mindful and grateful in the moment.
Thank you for this warm running water! Thank you for this egg! Thank you for this bloom on the plant I put in the ground last summer with no idea what it would become! Thank you for the sun coming up and the squirrels entertaining me in the garden.
Like attracts like. Be what you want to be, and think how you want to feel!
Taurus loves habits so we can makes new grooves in our structure for habits that are useful and that make us feel better.
The Higher Self is a part of us, so can be addressed as a constant companion. You can ask it it’s name or give it a name to encourage conversation. Have a chat as to a best friend who is always willing to sit, listen and when best for you, to advise.
This is the best way to value the self and value the Earth and all of its inhabitants, seen and unseen.
Much love to you all on this Earth Day. Remember, every day is Earth Day. 🌏💚🌍💚🌎💚
